About this game

★ Top Developer (awarded 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2015) ★
AI Factory's Backgammon is the best free Backgammon game on Android!

Backgammon is a game of skill and strategy; one of the world's classic parlour board games, played for recreation and gambling. Like Mahjong, Backgammon is played in social groups in coffee houses and bars. Historically, variants of this game are believed to have been played in Mesopotamia and Egypt thousands of years ago, then by the Romans and later in India. It also spread to East Asia, but was largely replaced by Xiangqi (Chinese chess). It is now very popular in the West.

Observations 1. The dice rolls are random. (It's funny that so many think otherwise) 2. While the game is entertaining, and has nice features, the strategy is sorely lacking at times. Even at the hardest level one should be able to win roughly 70% of the games. 3. The worst thing about this game are the extremely obnoxious ads. Worst I've ever experienced. Fortunately I have a work around and can stop them quickly. 4. If the game was more competitive I'd consider buying the ad free version.

Thank you for your thoughts. We continue to work on improving the top level AI strength but people may find weaknesses that the cpu cannot easily respond to. We're sorry you're seeing a problem with ads. Ad networks control what is sent and how it behaves, and popup ad between games is designed to be skippable after 5 seconds with fast forward or x

I reinstalled this game. Because it is really fun. But there are definitely some problems. I just played a game and at the end when we are loading off I was very definitely way ahead. Then the computer rolled five doubles in a row. I don't care how good you are at backgammon you can't beat a computer that cheats. I have also recently experienced the computer getting nine doubles and I got one or three. Many many experiences over the recent months where miraculously the computer gets exactly the

Thank you for your input but dice rolls are random (aifactory.co.uk/gli.htm) so streaks may happen in any small sample and doubles even out in Stats over extended play. Our games do not cheat. Cpu player may appear to get exactly what it needs because it uses probability to choose moves to cover all possible rolls (aifactory.co.uk/backgammon.htm)

I've enjoyed this game for a long time but in the last few weeks they have gone Ad crazy. You have to watch at least three ads to play a single game. And it's not 3 in a row, you have to click to "Play" each time after an ad and then it will load a new ad. It keeps you in an ad loop that you can't get out of. I hope it's a bug and they fix it soon but I'm not playing this game anymore. It's ridiculous to spend 2-3 minutes watching ads for a 4-minute game.

We're sorry for your ad experience. We've not changed anything with ads but ad networks control what is sent and how it behaves. The app is designed to show one popup ad between games however this might be shown in 2 or possibly 3 parts. Please report any problem cases to support@aifactory.co.uk. Paid version has no ads.

What's new

Improved doubling handling and substantially improved 1-point match play. Using doubling to force resign in 1-point match no longer supported.
